Overall a great night of terrific vocals, a great mix of styles, and two bands that feature great female vocals and vocalists period. Elize Ryd of Amaranthe is someone who you will hear from more and more in the future, and Sharon Den Adel has only solidified herself among the best female fronted metal vocalists today. Go out and see them live, entertainment at face value hits the States.
We wanted to create something fresh and new within the metal genre. Me, Olof and Jake E had a strong belief in our music. We worked really hard to make it as perfect and satisfying as possible, for us. I can’t point out any specific reason besides that maybe the world was ready for a change at this point. Luckily a lot of people did receive the message we wanted to send out to them through our music, and we couldn’t be more grateful and happy for that.
